    Is Madden NFL 21 Still Growing Out? Madden games are similar to birthdays - there's one every year. However, this year isn't like the others. Because of COVID-19 and worries of spreading the virus to others, major sports associations have canceled or postponed their own seasons. Even the Olympic Games have been moved to next year. Today, with NFL games slated to begin in early September, the idea of cancelling the entire year remains being sailed around. So, what does this mean for the NFL's official video game collection?

    So far, there have not been any major delays for the sport. Madden NFL 21 is set to release on August 25, 2020, together with Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson on the cover. It had been revealed that the 2019 NFL MVP could show up on the cover back in April, but because of the pandemic, a conventional photo shoot for the cover could not happen. Rather the game features stock photographs of Jackson, courtesy of the group's photography staff. It is a small hurdle to overcome, compared to the other challenges that the game has faced.

    If a global pandemic was not sufficient, Madden NFL 21 was bogged down by delays and negative criticism. The game was originally intended to be showcased on June 1st, but was postponed by the business in solidarity with the George Floyd protests and Black Lives Issue motion. Two weeks later, once the trailer eventually aired, fans were angry that there seemed to be no actual changes from previous Madden entries. Subsequently, EA was fast to show off some new attributes on social media, but the majority of these attributes were met with indifference and disappointment.

    Still, EA plowed ahead to release the game this year. Just as things were looking up for EA and buy Mut 21 coins, the Washington Redskins announced in July that they'd change their group's controversial name. Less than a week later, EA stated they were working on an update to remove the previous Washington football moniker from the game and are utilizing a temporary, generic title for Washington's team for now. Once Washington receives a brand new official name for their staff, it'll mostly likely be patched in at a later date.
